Happy Sunday! Paris recently announced a law that allows people to grow an urban garden anywhere in the city!

The city asked residents to get creative with where they grow plants, and it will contribute a “planting kit” with seeds and topsoil. They say they’ve offered a few suggestions, but mainly hope people will use their imagination for where they might be able to green the city.
